For the month of April, HealthFinders is the lucky non-profit to be the recipient of Just Food Co-op's 'round up dollars' program. Each month, Just Food's chooses a non-profit in the local community. Customers at the check out are asked if they would like to 'round up' their food dollars. All proceeds go directly to HealthFinders. There are also donation boxes at each check out station. It is a great way to help spread the word about the good work we are doing, support the Co-op and support HealthFinders. Make sure to shop at Just Food's in April and ROUND UP!
